Holiday Spirit and Stuff

"Mr. Snowman"

Being that it's the 3rd of December...I thought I should try and get myself in a little holiday spirit today (bah humbug hee hee)...and Mr. Snowman is just the person to do it! I think I collaged him when I was eight years old and amazingly enough have kept him intact all these years. I always thought he would make a cute Christmas card...although I would have a hissy fit if our card did not have a dog on it!

So...Miss Melissa (awesome dog artist!) at Pugnotes tagged me the other day to reveal 5 random facts about myself. Oh geez, you know this requires brain power, Melissa!...

1) I love movies, my favorite actress is Cate Blanchett.

2) I was featured in the local news as an ice skater when I was 5 years old. I stuck my tongue out at the camera when they were filming and my grandmother was forever mortified by that incident.

3) I have to eat cashews every day. It's a serious addiction.

4) One of my ancestors is Benjamin West, an American Painter. He died on March 11...and I was born March 11. Kind of weird. I don't think he painted dogs though...too bad.

5) I am a Saluki after taking the "What kind of dog are you" quiz.

Dear dear Linda,how can I refuse you? I don't know all the blog bells and whistles yet so here are my 5 things you may now know about me...
1.I was an extra in 2 John Waters movies "Serial mom" and "Desperate Living"love that pause button!
2.I am the whole family caregiver or sounding board(whiners)
3.I live for music! I feel it is the soundtrack of our lives.Some songs painfully wonderful the others painfully sad.
4.I feel I have a "dimension" of feeling too much or others feelings.
5.I think women should be more sensitive then they have become.
